Be Warned: light BDSM and spanking


Coming here had been stupid. If she left quickly, Ethan would never know she’d been there.

A step inside and she knew she’d made the wrong decision.

Ethan stood and came at her. “What are you doing here?”

“Ah.” She pushed the door closed behind her and stayed put. “I’m ah…”

“How did you get in here?”

“I took a cab. You’re busy. I’ll just get back in a cab and go home.” She turned around.

He stepped in behind her and placed his hand on the door above her head. “Don’t make another move.” He kicked her feet apart and pressed his body to hers.

She stared at the door. An ache rushed from her chest to the back of her throat, and then she heard a tiny little click.

He pulled her hair back and brought his lips to her ear. “They can still see us but our voices are blocked for thirty seconds.”

She had no idea what to say to him. Many times they discussed how dangerous it would be for her to get caught up in his business. “I’m sorry.” What a pathetic thing to say. She knew better.

“You followed me here?”

“I did.” Her stupid jealousy had gotten her here. She felt like a child. Maybe she should be punished like one. She tapped her head on the door.

“We’ll have a long talk about this when we get home.”

“I understand, Sir.” Her voice came out crackly.

“How did you find my room?”

“I may have told this second blonde woman I just started working here.” She wanted to crawl under the table.

“You did what?” His tone had gotten awfully low. “What do you mean second blonde?”

“Shit.” She tapped her head on the door again. Then she remembered the cameras. “I’m supposed to be in here making you happy.”

“You’ve failed.”

“Hey!” She turned around and he plastered himself to her.

“You have no idea the kind of danger you’re in this very minute.”

“From you? Yeah, I have an idea.”

“I’m the least of your worries. I’m working tonight.”

She sucked in a deep breath. Her heartbeat raced. “I’m so sorry.” Not only had she betrayed her promise to Ethan, but she’d put both their lives in danger.

He put his hand around her throat and squeezed. “Shhh.” He stroked along the back of her neck. His touch may have been gentle but his palm pushed her head back, bringing her gaze to his. “Follow my lead and I’ll get you out of here, but first I will make good use of our time.” His beautiful hazel eyes turned dark as night.

“Okay.” She trusted him and believed with her whole heart he’d get her out of this situation. A tiny click signaled the end to their privacy.

“Are you sure about that?” He hauled her back to the couch where he’d been sitting and pulled her over his lap.

“What are you doing?” She kicked her legs.

“You need to make me happy, wouldn’t want you getting fired on your first day.” He flipped up her skirt and yanked down her panties.


Nadia couldn't be happier, she's got her man and their love is stronger than ever. But Ethan is being a little distant, what is he doing that he's keeping quiet? Is it her, is she not satisfying him? Is there someone else?

So when Nadia choose to follow him one night, things quickly take turn that pushes her outside her comfort zone. But will Ethan be able to get to her in time before she is taken away from him forever?

Desire Protected is a quick, sensual, heart pounding read that will have you desiring more.

Nadia loves Ethan, but her past makes her question the depth of his love for her. But even with her worries, I love how she'll fight to keep her relationship together.

This story is intriguing and I enjoyed it immensely. The mystery surrounding Ethan case will keep you glued until the end. And the chemistry between Ethan and Nadia will have you yearning for more. They are seriously one seriously passionate couple.

Be Warned: spanking, light BDSM, public exhibition

S.J. Maylee is a married mother of two, dancer, lover of Nia, PMP (Project Management Professional), book lover, coffee addict, and published author. Her series include the Love Projects, Club Blind, and Assassins and Sweethearts.

Getting lost in a book is one of her favorite things to do. In early 2011, the characters in her head, which were normally well behaved, started to scream so loud that she pushed past her nerves and started to write.

She loves almost any kind of story as long as it contains a love story. She’s a sucker for romance, loves happy endings. Two of her all-time favorite authors are Jane Austen and Cherise Sinclair. Their brilliance sparked a change in the plots that had so often filled her imagination. Once her heroines began to see where they could fly, they demanded she write their story.

S.J.’s stories are not for the young at heart, as they reach deep into erotic romance. However, you will always find a happy ending.

She believes hearts are meant to come together and find love. As a writer, she has a tendency to break hearts, but she always glues them back together.
